The African Crocodile Experience.

How to Enjoy Afrikanos

Afrikanos is situated within the beautiful, lush Birkenhead area just outside the world famous Gansbaai, enriched with natural greenery, fynbos, ocean and history! We are only 3.5km from Kleinbaai Harbour in Gansbaai, the Great White Shark Mecca. Come compliment your diving experience with the Sharks by experiencing the freshwater Apex predator the Nile Crocodile

Be part of this exhilarating experience where man and crocodile collide in a natural and safe swimming environment. We at Afrikanos do not stick you in a cage, but allow you to “free” dive with our crocs, while they are safely being kept on their side of the pool by a sturdy and strong first in the world stainless steel net. No cages, no restrictions!

There is tons to experience for young and old at Afrikanos! For those that do not want to get their hair wet, you can come view the crocs from a safe distance while partaking in our fun and active croc pond tour! Our very knowledgeable tour guide will take you through the enclosure where you can view the crocs in their environment at our viewing cave! If you’re running low on fuel, take a stroll up to our fully licensed family restaurant and bar and enjoy some refreshments. Bring the kids along to be a pirate on our outdoor sunken ship play park! Fun for all at Afrikanos!
